Tights 'make a statement'
Leg wear does not just keep women warm in winter, one expert has said. With exciting new colours and styles allowing tights a renaissance, they are also a statement piece that says a lot about the wearer.

One expert writes in the Wall Street Journal that whatever the style, there is hosiery to complement it.

However, with eclectic styles and funky colours taking over the high street, there is a danger of ruining entire ensembles by making the wrong choice.

Sarah Whittaker, a Savannah, Ga, image consultant, tells the newspaper that women need to be especially careful in the workplace.

 "You may think it's just a pair of red tights," she says, "but actually, it can make a big difference" in how people perceive you.

This comes after the Daily Mail reported that young women are turning to the older generations for fashion inspiration, wearing nude tights and clothes that look like something a grandmother would usually wear.
